Cold Sores


Cold sores, sometimes called fever blisters, are groups of small blisters on the lip and around the mouth. The skin around the blisters is often red, swollen, and sore. The blisters may break open, leak a clear fluid, and then scab over after a few days. They usually heal in several days to 2 weeks.

We work with our patients of all ages to develop specialized treatment plans. A full range of therapies is available to our patients.

Treatment can include topical creams and/or oral medication.
